    While it may hurt attendance at any particular game, attendance for the sectional as a whole will almost undoubtedly go up. That's because you have the games people want to see (between the good teams) occurring after the games that turn out to be mismatches. Find a sectional final between the two best teams in the sectional now, and you'll be amazed how many letter jackets you'll see at that game belonging to other schools in the sectional who have already been eliminated.

    No. But, lets say Luers doesnt win sectional this year in 3a. That would give them 0 points over the 2 year cycle. Last year was the worst year ever for Luers football so obviously they werent winning anything. This year they are definitely a top 10 3a team, but if they get upset in sectional that would be 2 years in a row with no postseason titles. Now, Luers can certainly compete in 3a but without any titles its hard to justify keeping them up. This system also kills teams like Rensy and Col East who have once in a generation teams and will likely move up into better classes. The problem is that the success factor is based on the past, not the future. A graduated class of seniors means nothing to the future of a school. A great class of 8th graders means a whole lot. Sadly there is no way to measure this so I just really do not see any point for the success factor.

    I'm genuinely conflicted regarding Bill's article. The Memorial dad makes some fair points about attitude, the product being a reflection of leadership and such. I also think "your heart not being in it" is going to apply to a lot of stuff in this kid's life going forward. Sometimes it's not about doing what you want to do, but what you have to do or should do. I also cringe when I hear or read about "politics" or "favoritism" in HS sports. From my experience that's the go to excuse for a sensitive ego. If anyone thinks those buzzwords are exclusive to program's in disarray talk to Geesman or Sharpe... you could field a team with how many Parade All Americans they didn't coach because of "politics" and "favoritism".

    I honestly think Delphi vs Tipton will be the close 2nd best game in the conference and might actually end up being closer than the LCC-WL game. The talent on the field won't be as good, but the game will be just as exciting for both schools. Both these teams are even. Tipton plays a better non conference schedule keeping them from having an equal record. They both beat BC by about the the same. You can't look at losses here because they were all blow outs. I honestly have no idea who the favorite is, but experience of winning alone has to go to Tipton.

    i gave an honest assessment of the HH vs GS game and u threw a fit and hurled insults. Don't quit my day job, remember? Even though I've been right about pretty much every other game I've commented on. As far as the GS vs SR game? Your a real swami, you know damn well we are all beat up and it's going to be a real up hill battle for the Raiders. I guess the problem you have with a face to face is that I am all grown up. Now, we can go from here and have respectful debates about southern Indiana football or we can continue our grudge match. I'll let you decide.

    09ER MODE ACTIVATED!!! Message received!!! This game isn't for a conference championship? What a slap in the face to BC. First the coach crowns RC 2A State Champs, now he thinks they win it outright before the two teams get on the field. A share of the title is still up for grabs if BC wins. But who am I kidding we can't compete in 2A or 3A. Back to the lowly 1A for us. 09er mode deactivated...

    Bottom line, though, is the players. If they don't have a sense of pride, some guts and determination to work hard, push themselves and push others, it sure is hard for coaches to put a bowtie on it and shove it down their throats and make them eat it. Coaches can be a part of that, but if you just don't think you have to follow coaching or choose when and when not to work, that's on the kid. Sadly, too, a home issue. But I digress. Bill B.

    I know what you mean by Lancaster probably being a better QB. But isn't Wodicka the only Mr. FB to come from the Hoosier. He's the only one to win it in 3A or lower. I mean how deep is the talent level of the Hoosier if a Mr. FB is not considered in the all time greats list? He was voted the biggest impact player in the state that year, let alone the conference. Yet you are saying "Nah, not good enough." Im not trying to insult you or anything, just pretty crazy to think about. Interested in what other's say.

    Tipton's James Altlherr was Manchester's leading tackler through 3 games but is now out with an injury. He was a starting linebacker. Nate Hein is playing special teams as a frosh at Hanover. Wes Hill is a Senior at Hanover. Jake Dye was the leading receiver at Rose-Hulman his sophomore year but just came back from an injury and has had back to back nice games since his return. Josh Snider is a freshman at Franklin. Gunner Norred is a sophomore at Depauw. Austin Utsler was at UIndy but heard he might not be playing now. Luke Shively is redshirting at Northern Illinois. I don't think I missed anyone.

    Thats why the 4 year cycle, and the IFCA point scheme wouldve been "more balanced". The idea was to avoid the "good class" issue and the yo-yo issue which is certainly the biggest imperfection with this factor. Every system will have one. The IFCA went to great lengths to try to develop a factor that was as close to accomplishing it's purpose as possible. The current numbers seem very haphazard. But what do we coaches know about football...... Under the IFCA plan for instance Luers would continue in 3A at least 2 more years. IF enrollment wasn't part of the Luers equation that is.

    That's what we thought last year until we were down 18-7 starting the 4th. Schedule doesn't matter too much.

    He went there with Will Jones. Both were redshirted last year. Will is playing special teams. Timmy got his first start last week vs the #8 team. He had 4 receptions and 67 yards and was named offensive player of the week for Hillsdale.

    Ballhawk, West Central has only one set of bleachers, and they are the same ones that were there when I graduated in 90. I for one wish we would get bleachers on the other side. South Newton and Tri-County are the same way, a little newer. The nicest one side bleacher set up IMO is Whiting. There bleachers are huge. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Seats family, during this difficult time. He was a great guy and I'm going to miss seeing him walk by the house with his wife and dog.

    No need to apologize with your tongue firmly in cheek. I didn't say you were crazy. I said I don't think tipton will win. You said you thought they would and asked for an opinion from someone else. That's fine. It's not like I don't want tipton to win? Unbunch them panties.

    My apology wasn't directed to you but more so to October and Dazed and Confused for basically saying I was crazy for thinking we have a chance to beat Delphi. I respect your opinion and probably a good chance you are right.

    Thats why I pointed out that the other scores besides Rensselaer were very similar. Rensselaer was the low point of the season. They could have scored 100 on us. Delphi has won 3 of their last 4 but the teams they played I think Tipton would have won those games as well. I'm not saying Delphi won't win, heck they could blow us out for all I know. I apologize for thinking we have a chance against a team we have beat 14 straight times.

    The question was asked to provide reasons why people were picking Delphi..... Like I tell my kids, if you don't want to hear the answer to the question - DON'T ASK!

    And within another decade or two we may see teams such as Linton no longer exist. The way things are going, small town football is starting to fade into just a memory for some. People are starting to move to metro areas for jobs instead of going back home and the smaller towns are struggling and beginning to dry up. I won't live to see it, but the wheels are already set in motion. I guess you could say it is the bane of rural football and let's not forget: that's progress.

    I am not sure there is an easy draw in this sectional.... You have Edgewood, N.Montgomery, Brebeuf, TW, and Webo...I think Webo can beat NM... I think Bye needs to be healthy and they need to be able to take shots down the field to open up the D...

    Great post! LCC coaches are a class act. Can't say the same thing about WL. I'm not talking about everyone from WL as I've met some great people from there but they have their fair share of arrogant and classless people. As a coach in another sport, I have had great experiences with everyone in the conference including WL but football is a different story.

    It may actually help with the LCC 'image' on this forum. Part of his act is what caused a lot of folks to root against you. From personal experience, LCC is a school that I have had nothing but respect for from the get-go. Great people. I remember speaking with Coach O'Shea in 2008 when they lost a heartbreaker to us, and I can tell you the words he spoke to me and my son are words I won't forget. Total class guy. Had some LCC folks invite me to share some food with them at a pregame tailgate before the playoff game in 2011. All of these experiences can quickly be forgotten when you read some of these comments here. I always respected you folks way more than the folks at West Side. They were always the complete opposite, with the exception of Coach Overley. He was a good guy. Can't comment on the current staff as I haven't had any meetings with them. But as far as fan bases go, LCC is far and above the Red Devil faithful.

    Exactly my point. I was at that Plymouth-Northridge game. My comment was that Plymouth was then .. and is .. a better football team. Rockies did not dominate the Raiders, however, like they have the rest of the NLC. It was a great game. Plymouth made two huge plays which turned the game around. Plymouth and Northridge each dominated Concord in the NLC. There ya go. And you've ever read anything I've ever posted or written about Plymouth, I don't give back-handed compliments. I call it straight up. Rockies are real damn good. Bill B.
